How belief in a loving and sovereign God helps us to make sense of and cope with the coronavirus outbreak.
We are living through a unique, era-defining period. Many of our old certainties have gone, whatever our view of the world and whatever our beliefs. The coronavirus pandemic and its effects are perplexing and unsettling for all of us. How do we begin to think it through and cope with it?
In this short yet profound book, Oxford mathematics professor John Lennox examines the coronavirus in light of various belief systems and shows how the Christian worldview not only helps us to make sense of it, but also offers us a sure and certain hope to cling to.
Stephen McQuoid, General Director of GLO Europe had this to say about the book: 'At the very start of the lockdown I got the excellent little book by John Lennox Where is God in a Coronavirus World. It is a brief and rapidly produced book which does a brilliant job of speaking into the current situation. It is written in John’s characteristic style, both thoughtful and accessible. John starts by recognising how anxious people are about the Covid 19 pandemic, though he does note very helpfully, that viruses are by no means new and many of the viruses in the past have been more devastating than this one. He then goes on to a short section on suffering before asking the important question, can Atheism help? His clear point is that when a crisis such as this happens it matters a great deal what you believe because a worldview such as Atheism has nothing to offer.
Next he tackles the thorny question of God’s love in the face of such suffering. His answers, while brief, are good, both honest and realistic. He finishes off by focussing on the hope of eternity and the huge difference that belief in God makes at a times like these. This is a book that Christians would find encouraging but could easily be used evangelistically. I gave mine away to a neighbour to whom I have been witnessing. The modest price tag should also make the distribution of this book possible.'
"This 60-page booklet would be suitable to give throughout the duration of this virus to anyone asking you this question. Leading apologist and Oxford professor John Lennox examines the coronavirus historically, scientifically, theologically and in the light of various belief systems, and shows how the Christian worldview helps us make sense of it. I suggest you buy a few copies and have them ready to back up your own conversations around the coronavirus."
